This stairway is absolutely fabulous!!!! I am so excited for our call tomorrow and for the additional design boards that we will bring to one of our major donors for the naming of the space.
Thank you for the “AVIARIUM” design and for your vision. I believe your design captures the spirit of hope and joy and freedom that reminds us of children. So perfect as a metaphor for our mission.

This is amazing!!
Thanks so much,
